Carrot Cake Cupcakes
There is something truly incredible that happens when you combine grated carrots with classic cupcake ingredients. Like zucchini bread, you won’t eat carrot cake cupcakes and think vegetables. Instead they are just super moist, perfectly sweet and spiced cupcakes with a tangy smooth cream cheese frosting and chopped pecans sprinkled on top for a little crunch.
It’s a great little handheld dessert that is perfect if you don’t want to go to the trouble of making a full-size stacked carrot cake. This recipe is so easy you can make it by hand!
